I am pretty sure I am gonna buy narrow winter tires 14" for my Mirage hatch this coming winter. First time.
I will give my little car credit. My Mirage handles amazing in the winter, truly does, but no car can make snow squalls less squirrelly. Anyhow, I want to improve the handling from good to very good in the winter. I have hummed and wondered about this point for 7 winters now. My local dealer carries the Pirelli's but they want an arm and a leg. I like the Vredstein's reviews, but it's over $100(canadian) a tire according to the store Fummins posted there. Plus I find everything harder to find/get to/ do these days.
